Reach for Recovery (RFR)

Reach for Recovery (R4R) is a breast-cancer support organisation with a unique focus on breast-cancer support and one of the only organisations that provide a patient support service on a national basis. Well- selected and trained volunteers, who each have experienced the breast-cancer journey, render an emotional  care and practical support programme to  newly diagnosed breast cancer patients and their families. In some  regions, a prosthesis service is also provided, and the focus is also on indigent women that cannot afford this service.
